Moon rock?

Warning: Proceed only if you are comfortable with what goes on beneath toilet floors.

So having lived without indoor plumbing for a NUMBER of years (30 years total), getting a fully functioning toilet has been an adventure into an unknown space-time continuum. This might boggle some of your minds to say the least, but it has been a way of life out here! After getting up to speed with indoor plumbing, (you must read my post, The Queen’s Throne) and moving into our new and spacious Design Studio, we have been dealing with, um, a few plug-ups that we thought were the result of an over-zealous toilet paper user. Boy, were we wrong! After finally hiring someone to come out and assess the p-issue, THIS is what popped out of our pipes!

Our brave hero, Nick (hubby), battled the pipes for a day, before pulling out with this sizable piece of …

CONCRETE that was stuck deep inside a 4-inch sewer pipe!

Apparently, when pouring concrete in the area where the pipes were located, the seal to keep out the wet concrete didn’t hold.

Somebody call Houston.

    This is Hilarious! It was always easier before plumbing had to take on the job of the toilet. No end to the surprises in that realm.

    We didn’t get indoor plumbing until I was 5 or 6 years old. WHOA!!! I was terrified of that toilet. I was afraid of the swirling water when the handle was pushed down. …”And you want me to SIT on that thing?” Whaaaaaa? It’ll suck me in….Just let me go back outside to the outhouse, will ya?

    Ah Nick! What a guy! That IS an interesting story!
